|| Aum Sai Ram || Aum Sai Para Brahmanaa Namah ||
“Once a Mamlatdar came to Shirdi, with a doctor friend of his. The Doctor said that his Deity was Ram and that, he would not bow before a Mohammeden and so, he was unwilling to go to Shirdi. The Mamlatdar replied, that nobody would press him to bow down. So, he should come and give the pleasure of his company. Accordingly, they reached Shirdi, and went to the Masjid for Baba’s darshan. All were wonder-struck to see, the Doctor going ahead and saluting Baba. They asked him, how he forgot his resolve and bowed down to a Mussalman. Then, the Doctor replied that, he saw his beloved Deity, Ram, on the seat and he, therefore prostrated himself before Him. Then, as he was saying this, he again saw, Sai Baba there again. Being dismayed, he again said, “Is this a dream? How could He be a Mohammeden? He is a great Yogasampanna (full of Yoga) Avatar.”
Next day, he made a vow and began to fast. He absented himself from the Masjid, resolving not to go there, until Baba blessed him. Three days passed and on the fourth day, a close friend of his, from Khandesh, turned up, and with him, he went to the Masjid for Baba’s darshan. After the salutation, Baba asked him, whether anybody had gone to call him that he had come. Hearing this vital question, the doctor was moved. The same night he was blessed by Baba, and he experienced the Bliss supreme, in his sleep. Then he left for his town, where he remained in the same state of a fortnight. Thus, his devotion to Sai Baba increased manifold.
The moral of all the stories mentioned above, specially, that of Mule Shastri, is this, we should have firm faith in our Guru and none else.”
